Stunning 19th Century Episcopal Church

Henry St, Port Henry, NY 12974, USA
$30,000

Description

Come and view this rare opportunity to own/occupy an historic place of worship, crafted by a prominent 19th Century American artisan.  The former Christ Episcopal Church is situated in the village of Port Henry, New York, one of the nation’s ten leading iron-producing towns of the late 1800s, and was designed by architect/engineer Shepard Woodcock.  Its construction in 1872, in what was considered a central location facilitating access to other New York Episcopal churches, was a significant part of the Episcopal diocese’s expansion throughout the state.  Built in a Latin cross-shaped plan with steeply pitched cross-gable roofs and ceilings and an offset bell tower, the east-facing structure retains many original details: buttressed corner pilasters, a large starburst rose window, a triple lancet window of stained leaded glass, and red doors symbolizing the blood of Christ and path to salvation.  Its bell was made by the Meneely & Kimberly Foundry in Troy, New York.  This small but spectacular example of the Gothic Revival style in 19th Century wood-frame buildings needs extensive repairs and is eligible for tax credits of 40% of the cost of historic rehabilitation.  Whether used as a residence or business space, the church’s unique beauty and location in the village center, a minute’s drive from the Amtrak station and the Port Henry marina on magnificent Lake Champlain constitute a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for creative, history-loving homebuyers.
